Today Microsoft revealed a new trailer and box art for Rise of The Tomb Raider. They will also be at E3 this month so stay tuned as we will be providing news as soon as it comes out regarding the game!
Seaandbescene.com recently posted a lovely blog detailing how Camilla Luddington was chosen to play the leading lady, Cecilia in the upcoming romantic comedy, The Healer. They also posted a photo of Camilla with the crew. Here’s what they had to say:
We’re in Los Angeles, standing in the Lobby of the Peninsula Hotel waiting to meet the woman that Paco imagined when he wrote the script for THE HEALER.
When he and I first discussed the leading role of Cecilia, we knew we needed someone who would do a lot more than draw the attention of our male lead (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) by virtue of her beauty.
He’s a hunk himself, and plays a character who has no problem attracting female attention.
So Cecilia has to have that special something that sets her apart – intelligence, strength and independence.
Her character has a very specific purpose that isn’t revealed until the final act, so her performance must be subtle and layered.
We also wanted to entice an actress who would be known to audiences around the world, preferably someone popular on a TV show. Though many TV series are on hiatus during the summer, actors on the more successful shows are highly sought after and have very limited availability.
It was late February, and with growing unease I realized we needed to start moving fast if we were to start shooting in June. I was getting desperate and thought we might need a casting director to help. Little did I know I had one at home.
One evening my 14-year-old daughter, Natalie, asked me how we were doing with the film and I told her about the challenges of casting the role. Being an obsessive Grey’s Anatomy fan who’s seen every episode of the past 11 seasons, it took her all of a nanosecond to point us in the direction of Camilla Luddington.
Nat was right.
Camilla would be perfect.
And as we learned shortly thereafter, she liked the script, and was willing to squeeze us into her crazy schedule.
And that’s how we found ourselves waiting in the lobby of the Peninsula, anxious to meet our Cecilia.
At 2 p.m., as agreed, she arrives. Radiant and beautiful. She walks confidently towards us, smiles and gives us each a warm hug, immediately setting the tone. For the next 90 minutes we ate and spoke about life, the script, Canada, and dogs (her rescue dog Gus, Paco’s Border Collie Batman – who stars in the film – and my black Lab Sandy). She and Paco exchanged views about the story and her character, seeking a shared understanding of how to accomplish the intense work that lies ahead.
Good movies can be made by people who don’t get along well. But something special happens when the work is shared by people who are generous and enjoy each other’s company. Actors and their director who feel that way create something intangible that a camera can capture, something that breathes life into a film in a way that cannot be expressed in a script. It’s a magical ingredient that makes a film wonderful, and makes the process fun for the whole crew.
After our lunch, as we watched Camilla drive off, Paco and I turned to each other and smiled. She’s going to be great!
I wore a pair of black suede Christian Louboutins and a pair of Gianvito Rossi wedges. The wedges were perfect, as I needed extra height to wear a long jumpsuit, and they were also easy to walk in!
What is your favorite pair of shoes you’ve worn for a role, and why?
My favorite pair of shoes I’ve worn for a role would have to be the brown Vera Wang combat boots that Jo wears in her everyday life away from the hospital on Grey’s Anatomy. I love them because they are also something I would wear in my everyday life. I wore ballet flats the first season I was on the show — then I spoke with our wardrobe department asking for something less “girly.” It felt like Jo was a little too tomboy for a ballet flat, and the combat boots were more suited to her and her personality.
In the ER, Jo wears gray slip-on Skechers with her scrubs. I’ve gone through a few types of sneakers with her and I like those the best because they are the lightest and also feel like a sock. They are great shoes for running in ER scenes.
What shoes do you prefer on the opposite sex?
I like Converse on a guy. I can’t stand flip-flops or anything too over the top, flashy or bright. Nothing too bulky. I’m a Converse girl myself, so I feel like we can bond over our love of simplicity and comfort.
What is your all-time favorite pair of shoes you’ve wore for a red-carpet event?
I wore patent leather neon orange — I think they were McQueen — to Comic Con a few years ago to promote Tomb Raider. I loved them because they were the boldest color I had ever worn, and I wanted to wear something fun to match the event. It went perfectly with a comic book neon-graphic top I wore and black jeans. I think Comic Con pushes you to have a little more fun and be playful. Everyone else is dressed in cosplay…it would feel weird to wear something boring when you’re standing next to a Khaleesi!
What shoes do you want to be buried in?
I was given a pair of custom-designed heels in London that resembled the iconic ruby slippers. I don’t wear them, I just have them showcased on a shelf in my closet. But maybe since the Wizard of Oz was always my favorite movie, I would want to wear something magical.
What shoes do you wear when you’re recording Lara Croft?
There are two answers to this question. When I film motion capture I have to wear mocap shoes, which are black sneakers covered in felt with the round-ball “markers” attached to them. When I record voiceover I can wear what I want, so I wear mid-calf black Fiorentini + Baker boots. I’m standing on my feet for four hours straight, so I need to be comfortable, and boots are what she wears, so they help me get into character. It would feel weird recording a running scene and I’m standing in a pair of heels.
I have so many! But I own a pair of nude and gold Manolo Blahniks that not only look gorgeous but are the most comfortable heels to wear. I feel like they have extra padding on the ball of the foot.
My dream is to one day afford a real pair of ruby slippers. For me they will always be the ultimate shoe.
It is with great sadness that we must let you know that Camilla will no longer be able to attend GreysCon in Paris on 20-21 June 2015. Here is the note she posted on twitter:
To the incredible fans attending GreysCon in Paris,
I am so disappointed to share the news that I won’t be able to attend the convention next month. My team and I have been going back and forth to make my schedule work around my new film and we have exhausted all of our options — I can’t come.
I was so excited to meet all of you, especially after last year’s convention was cancelled. You’ve been so dedicated and I promise to let you know when I am able to attend in the future. I adore each and every on of you.. thankyou for understanding.
Fans who have purchased extras with Camilla will need to wait and see whether they are able to replace her with another guest. We will keep you updated on what is happening regarding Camilla extras.
Camilla recently spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about Jo and Alex’s big step forward on Grey’s Anatomy during the season 11 finale episode.
Jo has surprised Alex with this fixer-upper. What prompted her to buy the house, even knowing Alex himself owned Meredith’s old place?
When Alex says, “I’m asking you if it’s OK if they move in,” Jo makes a comment that, “Oh yeah, like I can say no to a widow and three kids.” She realizes that as much as she’s given a choice, she would never turn someone like that out of the house. She cannot say no. She’s often been in the position of needing to find a home. Jo knows that Meredith would love that house back and there’s also an element of it sounding like Alex almost needed to nest, in a way. He wants his roots and I think Jo feels that same way — that as a healthy couple, they also need their own space and their own time together. This was the solution to all of those things. It’s exciting for her but it also shows her that Alex is really committed to her and that she’s going to be put first for once. I think she feels that she’s not put first very often. This way, Alex can still have that relationship with Meredith — go over, give her the house, spend time with her — but then Jo and Alex will come together and have their own typical relationship-living-together moments that they want to enjoy.
Does Jo’s big purchase count as an adventure that they can do together or is she still looking to follow April’s lead?
I don’t know what happens next season, but I don’t think Jo was thinking anything [like] that she “for sure” had to go. I believe that this purchase is her staying, but also seeing if Alex really wants to take that next step with her. She’s definitely saying that now she wants to put down roots; she’s very serious about that. She’s crazy about Alex and you hear her say she loves Alex. I don’t think she’s leaving.
Alex and Jo have declared their love for one another. Where do they go from here? Does this put the pressure on Alex to propose?
Oh man, I know! In that time-jump episode, I got so many tweets about him proposing! I don’t know if it puts pressure on him. I think Jo and Alex are moving in a very similar pace within their relationship. I don’t think Jo is wanting to have kids immediately; she’s not expecting to get a ring. If it happens at this point, I’m sure she would say yes because obviously she’s crazy about him. I don’t think there’s pressure there, but who knows! It would be great to see some wonderful, epic proposal on Grey’s Anatomy. But knowing Alex, he’ll have a pizza delivered and the ring will be in the middle with a pepperoni on top or something! It will be a very Alex and Jo way of proposing.
Have you pitched that to Shonda?! That’s amazing.
(Laughing) I will, I’ll pitch it to her!
Jo, again, is showing that she’s the perfect girlfriend and understands Alex needs to be there for Meredith. But she’s had issues in the past with Mer being the third wheel in their relationship. How does Derek’s death change all that?
I don’t think her patience will run thin. I think Jo really respects that relationship with Meredith. She also is an adult who wants to feel as though she and her boyfriend have a healthy relationship where they’re spending quality time and moments together and she feels that that might be compromised. Jo really respects Meredith and losing Derek means that Jo relates to that feeling of not having people in your life that give you stability and love. She only has respect for Meredith and the house was her solution — and her way of trying to see if Alex can be both things for both people.
Do you see Jo and Alex as following a similar trajectory to Meredith and Derek? I mean, Derek built the McDream House for Mer and Jo may be doing the same thing here for Alex.
I wish it was a Dream House! That would have been much nicer! We filmed that scene and the place was so terrible, I was laughing when we turned up to set; it’s so Jo! But I love that she can see potential there, it’s so sweet. But that’s interesting; I never thought that Alex and Jo’s relationship was the same as Meredith and Derek’s. In one way, I hope so, and in one way, I don’t. Their love story is now a tragic one and I hope there’s a happier ending for Jo and Alex. To have the love that Meredith and Derek had, I think anyone would aspire to have.
As someone who grew up with nothing and lived in a car, why is home ownership so important to Jo?
It’s huge to her. It’s something to be proud of that she’s earned herself. It seems like a success for her. Wanting to put down roots and nest and have this place with the person she loves, that is something she must have always dreamed of. It was the thought in her head when she was living in her car that would get her through the day, that one day she would not be living that way anymore. It’s a huge step and extremely exciting for her.
How do you think Alex will juggle supporting Meredith with Jo? Do you think there’s any sort of power struggle coming?
I don’t think it’s going to be a separate life; it’s people getting their own space. Alex will jump over to Meredith’s and see her in the middle of the night [if she] needed him. That would absolutely happen — and Jo would not have an issue with that. She really understands that this is an extremely hard year for Meredith, and Jo, she gets it. I don’t think that that’s now going to wedge its way in the middle the way that it did before, because they do have their own place; it’s a solution for that.
How much do you know about season 12? Do you have any hopes for Jo next season?
I know nothing about the direction of next season. [As for] next season, toward end of the season, I’d love for Alex and Jo to be engaged. They’ve jumped over a lot of hurdles in their relationship. I was waiting to break them up! I feel like if they’re going to continue in this direction, that would be nice if they got married and at some point down the line even had kids. I also want Jo to find her specialty and to be part of the Plastics Posse. It would be really fun to see a female member trying to be part of that circle because it was like a boys club before and I feel like they need that female energy.
New concept art has been released for Rise of the Tomb Raider which is aimed to hit stores around holiday 2015 for XBox One and XBox 360. These photos are interesting as they showcase not only the Siberia snow location but also a desert location.
IMDB has posted a detailed synopsis for The Healer, in which Camilla plays the character of Cecilia
Alec’s life in England is falling apart. His electrical repair shop, “The Healer” is going out of business and his gambling debts are catching up with him. Unexpectedly a long lost uncle turns up offering to wipe the slate clean – on one condition – that he move to Nova Scotia for one year. He accepts begrudgingly, and soon finds himself living in the tiny rural town of Lunenburg. To earn a living he sets up an electrical repair services, also called “The Healer.”
The townspeople turn out in droves, but not for electrical repairs. They are convinced he is a healer of physical ailments. Unbeknownst to Alec, the whole town has been waiting for him – for a very long time. And sure enough people around him are getting cured. Alec is in denial, but bizarre events keep occurring. Dogs seem absolutely fascinated with him; a priest who has a heart attack and is certifiably dead comes back to life; and a deaf old man tells his wife to stop screaming at him. Finally Alec is confronted with the family secret that entwined both his family, and the family of the local woman (Cecilia) whom he has befriended for generations. The realization hits hard and Alec wants none of it. He is uninterested in helping others, and when forced to either accept or reject the gift, he shocks and disappoints the town by walking away. Just when Alec had made peace with his decision, a young girl stricken with terminal cancer turns up at his door, unexpectedly forcing him to reevaluate his choice.
According to an article published by the Hollywood Reporter, Camilla Luddington has been cast in a new romantic comedy movie alongside Jonathan Pryce called The Healer. The film is written and directed by Paco Arango and is set to start filming on June 4th in Nova Scotia, Canada.
We look forward to seeing Camilla in her new role!
Today Camilla tweeted that she has wrapped filming on this season of Grey’s Anatomy. Filming should restart in July or August for season 12, assuming that the show is renewed, which it should be as most of the main actors extended their contracts for two more seasons in 2014.
